They need to throw some of that green my way.

FJ said...

We need to THROW THE BUMS OUT!

Incompetent legislative regulators should be FIRED!

The Merry Widow said...

More than that, they should be fined for all they are worth(i. e., profits accrued after elections)and that money sent to the treasury...then throw the bums in jail, after tarring and feathering them on national tv.
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

tmw
Ride them to jail on a rail publicly too, it's called accountability!
And those who voted for them can fork over some of their assets too, that will teach them to THINK first, then vote!

And the Left will deny these figures till they run out of breath, and Ducky'll add that one of the Republicans is GAY.

And THAT is that. It negates EVERYTHING ELSE!! (LOL!)

(great illustration, too, Pops!)

Brooke said...

Politics = legal thievery.

It's that simple.

Funny how the MSM isn't looking into who's the majority thieves, though. Not.

Pinky said...

Thanks for posting this, Jason.

I think the current approval rating speaks for itself.

Chuck said...

I can see the media headlines now, " 3 of top 10 Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac beneficiaries were Republicans".

Salubrina said...

hey, which one of them should i hit up to pay off my student loan debt?



good luck in fantasy football today!!!!! :-)
and a huge thanks for your help and advice, as well as making me feel like a non-football idiot. :-)

Brooke and Chuck..IMAGINE?

The media's SO IN THE BAG..they aren't even making a fuss about last night's SNL insinuating Todd Palin has sex with his daughters because there's nothing else to do in Alaska..see that? IMAGINE if a Conservative said THAT about a Lefty?

AND WE ARE ALL QUIET.....!! They have carte blanche to do ANYTHING they wish because, if we complain, we're 'old fashioned', 'can't take a joke'...then they'll OUT the guy complaining, right? grrrrr

EDGE said...

Lotta D's in that list...

Hmmmmmm...

Steve Harkonnen said...

I am not sure, but I would scream REVOLT if I ever found out the Feds were also bailing out WAMU. I recently paid off those sons of bitches and I am now a happy camper since I ditched my WAMU credit card.

Nancy Swider said...

McCain needs to hammer that point home in the debates. Instead of blaming bush he needs to use this week and the debates to go on the offensive.

nanc said...

Papa Frank said...

This here is just the top 25 list. They actually gave to the campaigns of 364 politicians in total.

nanc said...
